    Harrison Avenue Bridge Project To Start Monday

    SCRANTON — A long-awaited bridge project in Scranton is set to start next week. But PennDOT officials said the span that’s almost 100 years old will stay open while crews build a new one next to it. The Harrison Avenue Bridge is one of the most distinctive parts of Scranton’s landscape, but it hasn’t looked so great the past few years. PennDOT put up signs this week telling drivers that the project to replace the bridge will start on Monday. […]

    DEP To Investigate Coal Waste Fire

    EYNON — A coal waste fire in Lackawanna County is still burning but officials don’t know how deep or how wide it goes. Crews started fighting the fire at a park in Eynon on Monday. Now, the Department of Environmental Protection has taken over. By the looks of it, you might think crews were finishing their work at the scene of a coal waste fire in Eynon, but in reality the work is only beginning. “I’m more scared today than […]

  • Mid-Valley Ice Cream Spot Moving

    DICKSON CITY — Robert Harris of Olyphant brought his granddaughters for an after-school ice cream snack. It’s something he used to do with his dad at the same store. It just had a different name back then. “It was the Carvel, yeah. Then they changed it. They did away with the Carvel, but I don’t think most people realize it for the most part,” Harris said. Now it’s called The Ice Cream Shoppe. No matter the name, ice cream has […]

    Family Sentenced In Neglect Case

    SCRANTON — Family members, accused of starving one of their own to death, learned their punishment Thursday in court. When a mother and two daughters were arrested on murder charges last year, the district attorney in Lackawanna County said it was “the worst case of neglect” he had ever seen. The three women from Taylor let their son and brother starve and suffer from scabies until he died last year. The remaining members of the Gensiak family from Taylor are […]

    10-Year-Old Accused Killer Stuns Prosecutors

    SCRANTON — It seems so bizarre to mention “10-year-old boy” and “homicide charges” in the same sentence. What’s even more unfortunate is that our area has seen other youngsters charged with violent crimes. Each time, the cases prove to be difficult to deal with. Before attorney Ernest Preate did criminal defense, he was attorney general for Pennsylvania and before that, the district attorney in Lackawanna County. All that experience and he was still shocked to hear a 10-year-old boy from […]

    Bridge Work In Moosic A “Positive Sign”

    MOOSIC — It’s been a long three years for folks who live on either side of a bridge in Lackawanna County. The Main Street Bridge in Moosic has been closed all that time, but this week crews started replacing it. Lackawanna County owns the bridge on Main Street in Moosic. Officials closed it more than three years ago, saying it wasn’t safe. But funding sources and utility work held up work to replace the bridge until Monday when crews started […]

    Increasing Need, Decreasing Help

    SCRANTON — A new food pantry opened last month in Scranton and organizers say so far it has been “too successful.” The pantry has the same problem that many others in Lackawanna County have: a growing number of people in need, but fewer businesses that donate. Catholic Social Services opened its newest food pantry in downtown Scranton last month at the new St. Francis Commons facility. It’s a new kind of pantry, too. Families spend points on the types of […]

    University’s Rehab Center Takes Shape

    SCRANTON — People in downtown Scranton are looking up, literally. Construction crews are in the midst of the University of Scranton’s tallest undertaking to date. It’s also stretching the campus limits. “It’s very visible for the ‘townies’, you know? You go around on Courthouse Square, and everything was tucked away up here, but now you have this massive building that everyone can see from down there. I like it,” said student Zach Shapiro. The building under construction on Linden Street […]

    Workers Catch Commuter Tax Mistake

    SCRANTON — Even though a judge struck down Scranton’s commuter tax last week, a few hundred people who work in Scranton but live elsewhere had the tax deducted from their paychecks anyway. Now, they’ll need to be reimbursed. Officials at the University of Scranton say faculty members who are commuters — possibly several hundred of them — had the commuter tax mistakenly deducted from their pay at the end of last week. We have learned that the university and at […]

    Taking The Stairs at City Hall

    SCRANTON — Scranton City Hall is like a trip back in time, maybe a reminder of the city’s better times. The elevator has the same retro feel, without the charm though. After stalling one too many times, the mayor decided to shut it down for repairs. “For years the elevator has broken down repeatedly. It’s broken down several times since I’ve been here. It’s painful to have it down, but it needs to be repaired. There’s no other way out,” […]

    State Police Investigating Arson At Estate In Dalton

    DALTON — State police say a fire in the garage of a large estate is a case of arson, and now one of the owners of the home, and neighbors in Dalton have serious suspicions about why it happened. The estate on Lily Lake Road in Dalton has been empty for more than a year and has been for sale for many months. Neighbors say they remember the mansion in its heyday when its eight-bay garage housed classic cars. So, […]
